Description

This resource, from the Economagic Web site, provides links to Producer Price Index data, categorized by type of product, in both seasonally adjusted and non-seasonally-adjusted formats, from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The Economagic Web site is a comprehensive site of easily available economic time series data useful for economic research, in particular economic forecasting. This site, which is a set of Web pages, was started in 1996 to help students in an Applied Forecasting class. The idea was to give students easy access to large amounts of data, and to be able to quickly get charts of that data. There are more than 100,000 time series for which data and custom charts can be retrieved. Users have the ability to make their own custom charts, XY plots, regressions, and get data in excel files, or in copy & paste format for transferring to other computer programs. The majority of the data is USA data. The core data sets involve US macroeconomic data. There is an option for some additional charts that may require a subscription and fee, but educators can get a free subscription if they are using the data with students. Less
